25 Days of Christmas Day 22

Hello and welcome to Day 22 of the 2nd Annual 25 Days of Christmas celebration. There are stil some great prizes to win and some free files to grab, so head on over to Cooking With Cricut to check it out.

Day 22 is a Holiday theme, so I decided to create a Nutcracker gift bag. My niece is a ballerina and every year her studio does a performance of the nutcracker. I thought this would be the perfect bag to use for her gift this year.

The nutcracker and the background paper are from the Santa's Village Imagine cartridge. This cartridge is full of great stuff!

I did things a little differently this time and cut all the layers of the nutcracker and pop dotted them to give him some more dimension. This is a picture of the side view so you can see all the layers and dimension. I love that you can do things either way with the Imagine.

To make the bag a little fancier, I added some stickles to the nutcracker and added a bow and poinsettia to the handle. It's hard to see in this picture, but it's there. I am having some major lighting issues in my scrapbook room and I need to find a new place to take pictures.

I hope you have been enjoying our 25 Days celebration and don't forget to check back for the final 3 days!!! I would also like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
